Since 1987, the National Center for Appropriate Technology’s ATTRA – National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service has provided the organic farming community with timely and helpful information on production and marketing. Now that organic agriculture has entered a new era of expanding growth, sophistication and federal regulation, the need for information has moved to a new level. To meet that demand, NCAT has sharpened its focus on certified organic agriculture. We are forming new partnerships with other organizations, creating new materials and updating old ones, tackling new issues and bringing fresh perspectives to familiar questions. In order to assist you in using our service, we’ve created this guide to our organic publications. In it, you will learn what these publications contain and how to use them.Organic rule and compliance ...................... 1 Farm inputs ..................... 4 Marketing and business................................5 Horticultural crops ....... 6 Field crops ....................... 7 Livestock ........................... 8 Soils and compost ........ 9 Pest management ......10 Publicaciones en Español/Spanish publications ................... 12 Photo by Susan Tallman, NCAT.
